Start by making a couple of crux moves pass two bolts, then it’s on to flakes and jugs. This is a great warm up for the other climbs on the slabs.


This is the obvious crack and flake system n the middle of the slab. It starts at the toe of the cliff.


Two bolts, one small C3 and some big stuff to BD #4

The first 10 feet seem more like solid 5.7 then 5.5. I know, I am old. BRW

I pretty much agree with Brad, maybe "5.6+ or 5.7-" (but those grades seemed to have disappeared from MtnPrject.) Those leading might consider stick clipping the first bolt....

Ah...but we all know that the first 8-10 feet don't count in the rating, right?!
